Tami Shaikh

Author Tami Shaikhabout this book: "The 11th Step", is a story set in rural Pakistan. It is a story of triumph, failure, love, suicide, terror and is just plain heart warming. The "11th Step" will take you into a world of unacknowledged territories of the human mind and relationships.

It's a journey of a man named Noor (which means a bright light from heaven in Arabic). The book actually chronicles not just Noor's life, but the life of his wife, daughter and sons. It is written from four different perspectives.

The book starts with Noor telling his story in his own words until tragedy hits. Then his wife who (commits suicide) tells her story right before the suicide. Through his daughter's words we find out about the family's migration and Noor's second marriage and her own marriage at the age of 12. The last son then comes in and tells the story of his brother becoming a terrorist and how he escaped all the madness through studying and coming to America.
